Open University to increase service user involvement.
Jess Wade, SDSS Manager, recently attended a session run by the Scottish Inter-University Service Users and Carers Network in partnership with IRISS about involving service users in social work courses. She made a number of useful contacts and promoted SDSS members as a route for courses to showcase opportunities for involvement and will continue to build links to do this. The Open University are particular keen to attract more service users and carers to be involved in their social work courses in a number of ways, described in the document below, so please do pass this information on to your members and service users.
